Reviewed October 2, 2013

My first visit to Croatia. Thank you Robert and Petra for making me feel welcome in your beautiful apartment and town. Fox apartments are perfectly situated to enjoy a relaxing stay close to the center of Cavtat and just a short drive or water taxi ride to amazing Dubrovnik. The apartment was very clean, modern safe and comfortable. All of Cavtat is within walking distance as well as beautiful walking trails by the sea, restaurants, shops, and of course the incredible harbour. Petra and Robert were always happy to answer any questions or offer advise on places to go or what to see. I will definitely visit the Dubrovnik/ Cavtat area again with my family and will stay at Fox apartments. Thank you Robert and Petra.

Hey Marty, We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay in Cavtat and Fox Apartments. You were a delight to have and hope that you bring the family next time. In fact when you decide to visit us again, I'll give you a nice discount! Maybe even try to organize a hike to the top of the mountains above Cavtat and get in some fishing. All the best to you and your family and hope to see you soon, Robert and Petra

We returned recently from a week at Fox apartments and I can only re-iterate all the previous reviews/comments.
Booking was painless and easy, Robert was waiting as promised at Dubrovnik airport and the transfer time was literally a few minutes.
We had booked apartment 2 by choice and it did not disappoint.
A cooker and washing machine ( in the shower room ) were big advantages in this apartment and meant we could make a light breakfast before venturing out and my wife could keep on top of the dirty washing !
Small TV with limited channels but if your here to watch TV then your doing it wrong lol.
Great balcony views ( apartment 3's are even better ).
Robert's wife Petra was great and even afforded us a few freebie treats ( wine and home-grown fruit ) which was a nice touch.

The only down side, as you will no doubt read, is THE HILL.
A gentle stroll down but painful coming back up, not for the elderly or infirm !
We did use taxi's and the local bus ( stops at the bottom of the street ) a few times, particularly after our evening meal/drinks.

Cavtat itself is an excellent marina resort with lots to offer in terms of eating/drinking/sunbathing and generally relaxing. It has a great laid back vibe which is exactly what we like when we go on holiday.

Absolutely no complaints and will hopefully be back one day.

Room Tip: Read up on the reviews and decide what your preference is regarding which apartment suits you best.

I'm Matthew's other half and all I want to add onto the end of his review of these wonderful apartments and fantastic hosts is: we're getting married next year and the day after we've already booked flights to bring all four of our children to Fox Apartments for a 'Familymoon' instead of a honeymoon. We can't wait for them to swim in the beautiful Adriatic, live in their own apartment (which we know to be situated safely amongst family-oriented people and below ours), see breath-taking sunsets, stunning views of Cavtat itself, eat in our favourite restaurants and get a slice of Croatian life. :-)

Room Tip: Apartment 1 or 3 for the views.

Hey Alicia, Thanks for the nice addition. Like i said, Petra and I are looking forward to the "Familymoon" and hope that next summers stay will be even better than this one. We'll have to make some more Limoncello! Hoping for only the best for the wedding preparations and will most likely to in contact before the wedding. See you soon, Robert and Petra

We chose these apartments on a recommendation and had never even considered Croatia before as a holiday destination. We booked our stay with Robert by email - a very simple and straighforward process and any questions we had were immediately answered. We booked our flights after booking which was a mistake as the other way round is a lot cheaper!
Robert offered to pick us up at the airport. I don't know about you but I always worry we are going to be marooned for days with only a stale packet of crisps awaiting being picked up but a big smiley face and a clear sign awaited us. Cavtat is only a five - ten miute drive away and I could rate rave reviews about the town and go on for ever about the wonderful places to find but this review is about the apartments!
We stayed in Apartment 3 and it is important to remember you are sharing a beautiful families home. All apartments are seperate and you have total privacy but if you want to get to know Robert and Petra they are the most ameinable couple with adorable children and truly make your break one that you will remember forever.
Our room was superbly clean, fresh, had aircon, free wifi, well equipped and a balcony to die for - loads of room for relaxing, eating or just leaning on the railing watching life go by on the sea view. Robert designed and built these apartments himself and you can tell by the level of care and attention that has gone into the sallest details - the stones around the hearth (yes you could have a roaring log fire if you wanted to!) are used locally as roofing slabs in some villages for example.
Two things that while they didn't make any difference to our enjoyment could have helped would have been a proper shower in the bathroom (you have a bath you can swim in though with a shower attachment!) and a proper 'self catering' area as you tend to wash your breakfast things up in the bathroom sink and cutelry is kept in the wardrobe!
Our personal experience was an incredible one - to go on holiday and be looked after so well really was a unique experience. We personally find staying in a hotel a bit sterile and false and these apartments were on a scale you would pay an awful lot more for with the personal touches that count so much. Finding bowls of figs or grapes in your room, refreshing drinks in your fridge, an offer of a lift into town is wonderful and if you have anything you need help with both Robert and Petra make this their priority - even running aorund with didgital boxes when they were due to go out for dinner!
The apartments are located a good 15 minute walk down a steep hill from the harbour - we ended up taking a taxi back on several occassions but at the same time this means you have a retreat away from the crowds and nightlife if you want some 'quiet time'. At the end of our two weeks we hardly noticed it at all and there is a well stocked supermarket at the end of the road if you don't want to venture all the way down.
Overall I would not hesitate to recomed Fox Apartments to anyone. It is a real gem of a find - you'll want to keep it secret though so that you can book when you want but also write a review of a wonderful experience!

Hey Matthew, What can I say... It was a pleasure and will be again. You and Alicia give off such a great what I can only call vibe that you seem to create a good atmosphere where ever you go. In say that, it is always great to have such nice guests but that I had already told you. By the way... I have change the internet to super high speed! Petra and I are looking forward to you "Familymoon" and meet the children. Hope the coffee is working out for you. All the best in the preparations and I'm sure we'll talk to you soon.

Cavtat is an ideal location as it is only a10 minute taxi drive from the airport and is a wonderful place for a relaxing holiday. As stated quite clearly in other recent reviews, Robert and Petra were the perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome from the moment we landed. Petra kindly spent some time with us on arrival in Apartment 2 and provided us with some local refreshments along with some very useful inofmation about the Cavtat and Dubrovnik area. The firdge was also stocked with chilled water, orange juice, local wine and beer which was a really nice touch. Throughout our 2 week stay, Robert and Petra were available to help and answer any questions we had about places to visit and how to travel - they couldn't have been more helpful (3 children were also a delight). Apartment 2 was large, spacious, very clean and extremely well kitted out with sun loungers on balcony, nice kitchen, large bathroom and air conditioning. The apartment is located in a very quiet area of Cavtat and is a15 minute hilly walk from the centre but you are guaranteed nice views and a peaceful stay. Getting around by bus or boat was easy, with the boat trip to Dubrovnik and surrounding islands being very enjoyable. This was our first trip to Croatia / Cavtat and we believe we chose the right place to stay, which certainly made our holiday more enjoyable and memorable. Thank you Robert and Petra for a great stay in Cavtat.

Not a problem Garry! Any time! I'm glad we were of help and that you like the wine. Of course, we hope you'll come back to visit again soon. The wine will be waiting! I must say that we have never had anyone leave the apartment in such a clean state. Although Petra prepared the apartment for the next quests, she was not sure where to start because it was so clean! Next time you would like to stay with us, you guys have an extra day free of charge. Until then only the best, Robert and Petra

Cavtat is just about our perfect holiday destination, a great place to chill out with lots of fantastic places to visit when you fancy a change of scenery. To go along with this lovely destination we also landed in these excellent apartments with fantastic hosts in Robert and Petra. Not only did they give great advice on restaurants and places to visit but also went out of their way to help with car hire and acquiring that most essential of holiday accessories, a kettle!

We stayed in apartment one which had a large terrace which gets sun for most of the day, with a table, chairs and sun beds. Unfortunately there is an apartment being built across and down the road which spoils the view a little bit but you can still open the curtains in the morning to a lovely view of the Adriatic. If I had one complaint it would be that the beds were too comfortable, none of us wanted to get out of them!

That hill!

We looked on the hill as good aerobic exercise, helping to reduce the weight we were putting on due to the excess of food and drink we were consuming. However, there is no getting away from the fact that the hill is hard work during the heat of mid afternoon, even for relatively fit people such as us. It would certainly not put us off staying here again though as it is worth putting up with the hill for the views of the bay from the top which you might never see if you stay in town.

All in all, we could not recommend this place more. Thanks Robert and Petra, hope to see you again in the not too distant future. Janette is demanding a bracelet to go with her ring!

We can't commend owner, Robert, highly enough. He was helpful from the moment of our booking. We arrived by boat from Dubrovnik and he kindly met us and ferried us to the apartment where we were supplied with local drinks, one made by his wife Petra, and beer, juice and chocolate bics in the fridge. We stayed in apartment 3 which was very spacious and had a great balcony equipped with a table and chairs and 2 sun loungers and a brilliant view of the sea. A fridge, kettle and crockery/cutlery meant we could have a simple breakfast. The supermarket is at the junction with the main road out of Cavtat and close to the bus stop for Dubrovnik. There's no denying that it's a hike out of town but welcome after an evening meal and excessive ice cream consumption. Who knew that Croatia would be so good for ice cream?! Excellent wifi signal at the apartment too.
